“HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE, NOT A RESULT. NOTHING WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY UNTIL YOU CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY. NO PERSON WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY UNLESS YOU DECIDE TO BE HAPPY. YOUR HAPPINESS WILL NOT COME TO YOU. IT CAN ONLY COME FROM YOU” …..Ralph Harslon
So for the better part of this year I’ve been really unhappy and it’s school related. I won’t say depressed per say but something very close to it and I have been going about with a long face. This has no doubt affected so many things and in fact almost ruined my relationship with some of my friends until a few weeks back when I decided I was going to be HAPPY REGARDLESS as I really can’t remember being genuinely happy any time this year, okay maybe I’m exaggerating, I might have had a few moments but not just enough.
Happiness is intentional and you don't need anybody's consent to be happy. Here's why! Click To Tweet
I’ve come to realize that happiness is intentional. Even though sometimes, things don’t go as planned, you can make a conscious effort, more like a decision to be happy and look towards the positive aspect of whatever it is that has happened. Major reason being that you actually deserve it. Everyone deserves to be happy. I also learnt to move on and face what is ahead because worrying would not help. Well… it hasn’t helped anybody I know of in the past.
Forgiving myself was one thing I had to do. In fact, this is an important step.most times when some things happen, we tend to blame ourselves for these things. not keeping in mind that some of these things are out of our control. this was the last step i took which made me unhappy for long. In fact that should have been the first step.
I have however decided to make conscious effort to be happy regardless. It is from within and not just from smiling or having a good laugh. We all have that one thing that gives us joy. Find it and do it. Make sure you however do not attach your source of happiness to anyone as they are only human and hence, may fail us. Check out my post here on how to enjoy your own company.
